Glen Grant Five Decades

Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland

5.0 out of 5 stars
I had a sample of this at a Glen Grant tasting, and it is absolutely to die for. On the nose, there's a complex spiciness, savory raisin quality, pipe tobacco, and almond. I could nose this all day and not get bored. It's the palate, though, that knocks this one out of the park - dried fruits, pipe tobacco, leather, Marcona almond, vanilla, toffee, even a little petrichor (damp earth). My notes include the phrase "this is what God tastes like." Maybe I was a little caught up in the moment, but this is really delicious.

    Wonderfully described! I tried this whisky a year or so ago, before I started recording notes. It was fantastic. I had a good laugh about "this is what god tastes like". Caught up in the moment is exactly what you should be when drinking great whisky.
